Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik on Friday called for a shutdown on August 26 and 27 across Jammu and Kashmir to protest the hearing on Article 35A in the Supreme Court, which is to begin from August 27.
After twice deferring the hearing, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear four petitions challenging the Constitutional validity of Article 35A of the Constitution of India which prohibits non-permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) from owning land in the state, getting government jobs and scholarships, and voting in state assembly and local elections.
